In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Mother Meera is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. She is likely to work her way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through her astute strategies combined with her willingness to take risks. Mother Meera aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times her impulsiveness may be at odds with her conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Kamala Reddy could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing herself and acting spontaneously versus doing what she needs to do to get ahead and realize her long-range ambitions.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, she is driven to prove herself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Her work, her position in the world, and her contributions to society are very important to Kamala Reddy. Mother Meera will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal she has set for herself, and she often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Mother Meera has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show her inner feelings and needs. Mother Meera seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. She is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. She is highly conscientious and even as a child she possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
She is basically a pragmatic realist, and though she may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, she feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Mother Meera has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in her as well.
She is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. She is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Mother Meera has a great respect for tradition and even if she does not agree with certain laws, she will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Mother Meera plays by the rules.
She is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. She is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving herself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Kamala Reddy.
Kamala Reddy's strong points are her depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. Her faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Kamala Reddy. Mother Meera has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Mother Meera may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Mother Meera tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Mother Meera has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Mother Meera deeply believes in her own power and her ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Mother Meera has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, she pursues her desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and she may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Mother Meera likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Mother Meera probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Mother Meera never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But she also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
